After an all-night nurse-a-thon last night, I was fantasizing about night-weaning as I shaved my legs this morning. Well, I must have pissed off the goddess of breastfeeding or something, because the next thing I know, the razor slipped out my hand and slit me on, yes, my nipple. For those who don't know, I nurse off of only one breast and it was indeed that breast that felt the wrath of my little blue Venus.
(Don't even bother trying to imagine how it is possible to cut your nipple while shaving your legs. It is pretty improbable.)
I put off DD's next feeding a little bit to give myself a little time to heal, and it didn't bother either of us, fortunately. It is a little irritated now, though. A bit of Neosporin should be okay to use, right? I tried putting a band-aid on it, but that didn't feel good at all. Should I just treat it like I would a cracked nipple?
